Today's portion

Portion is a key framing word in Qohelet. I am working on chapters 3 to 6 together. They will come soon to a blog near you.  But do note this - especially you who are in pain because of your past days.

For he will not much remember the days of his life
for God answers in the happiness of his heart

Dr Seuss rhythms or not, this is a serious book and has a message cognate with Ruth, Job, and the Song. That God answers. It is also a book about economics - remarkable. Makes me consider the Euro and the lack of escape for a poor country when its currency cannot be devalued. Silver is not the rnsr as Owl would write.
